Mark Ronson is to score a new ballet piece, it was revealed today (February 22).

Ronson, who has most recently been working with Rufus Wainwright on his new album 'Out Of The Game', will collaborate with choreographer Wayne McGregor on a new Royal Ballet dance piece.

The piece, which will premiere in April as part of a triple bill that will have six performances at the Royal Opera House, is currently without a title.

Ronson will work with songwriter Andrew Wyatt, who is a member of Miike Snow, to create nine songs for the production. Wyatt contributed to two songs on Ronson's last album 'Record Collection'.

According to the Royal Ballet, the songs will "focus on the Jungian theme of anima/animus and the theory of collective masculine and feminine unconscious".

He released his theme song for the Olympic games 'Move To Beat' earlier this year. Dubstep songstress Katy B sings lead vocals on that particular track.
